Second runner-up in the Trans-Danubian Robert Runcie Lookalike Contest shows Miss Ulrike the ropes.

Glad to see they're bar-coding deaconesses in Austria now. This must be what Cardinal Hummes had in mind when he declared that, "in this modern age," the Church must "advance with history." (The prefect's sell-by date, incidentally, is 8 August 2009. Best stored in a cool dry place.)

Tip to CathCon.

    Regarding your comment about the retirement date of Cardinal Hummes; Many have wondered, including myself why HH Benedict XVI would have appointed Hummes and Levada to their positions. I think I have the answer, there is that old saying; "Keep your friends close and your enemies, closer."

    But which one is the deaconess? And how can you tell?
